thanks for the information to both of you. I have been so frustrated lately that I have been considering simply going on valtrex for 5 years or however it works.
one thing I am wondering is *why* does coconut oil work? I have read that herpes outbreaks have to do with the lack of oxygenation of the cells, which is how medicines like valtrex function, by inner cellular oxygenation.
so are coconuts simply highly alkaline with some sort of stronger reaction which helps cells, the body become more oxygenized/alkaline?
I would love for someone to dip some pH paper into their cocnut oil and tell me what the pH meaures as..
this isn't all that accurate though as once a substance is inside the body, it can cause differnet results regarding pH, alkalinity, oxygenation, etc. This is why certain things, like cittric juices (lemon juice during the master cleanse) are acidic on the surface but have a *net effect* of alkaline once processed by the body.
thanks again for the information. I am willing to try it out. if it doesn't work though, I am taking the vaLtrex plunge. it's just gotten top be way to frustrating and I know from the experience of friends (and my sister) that it works..
